Following the success of WordSurge, which reached Number One in the App Store Free Charts and App Store Trivia Charts, Live Tech Games has launched KnockOut, a new interactive game, in partnership with ITV.
The new app will host live trivia games alongside the World Cup. KnockOut is available to download in App Stores now, coinciding with the first game of the tournament to air on ITV (Senegal v Netherlands) and the first KnockOut tournament set to start at 21:00 on November 21st.
KnockOut brings together the Live Tech Games framework of live trivia tournaments with the thrill of ITV’s coverage of the World Cup. With a direct screen-to-screen experience, ITV viewers can test their knowledge of football themed trivia using their mobile phones. The trivia in each KnockOut game is relevant to the matches and teams of the day, with tournaments set to be hosted after the last match of the day is played. Players will go head to head in the live tournament, matched up at random, and compete to answer correctly as fast as they can.
As with other Live Tech Games offerings, KnockOut is free to enter and play, with champions winning cash prizes.
Samuel Worsley, co-founder and co-CEO of Live Tech Games, said: “The FIFA World Cup is a huge TV event and we are so thrilled to continue our partnership with ITV on such a momentous occasion. The ITV team is fantastic and has incredible plans to roll out coverage across TV, socials and with the help of KnockOut, interactive mobile platforms too. We can’t wait to see football fans come together to engage in a fun and competitive game themselves.”
Enita Kang, Director of Studio 55 Ventures at ITV, added: “We’re very excited to be extending our coverage of the FIFA World Cup 2022 into the gaming realm with this brand new interactive product. We love to enhance our reach to new audiences and this exciting new form of interactive entertainment does exactly that.”
